We headed north from Jerusalem on our 7th day in Israel….with Cesarea the first stop. It was the capital city known as “little Rome”. Herod was appointed by the Romans to facilitate Roman rule in 22 BC. This is where Peter proclaimed the good news to the Roman centurion, Cornelius. This area could be the place Paul was sent for his trial in Acts 25.
and beautiful clear water! I think this place had the greatest ambiance and would make a great resort!! Complete with views of the Mediterranean Sea!
Part of the ancient aquaduct still exists!
Camels along the road as we go north.
There have been 26 layers of cities found on this mound.
We spent the night at Kibbutz Ginosar, right on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. A group from Tel-aviv settled here in 1934 and in spite of conflicts have survived, with “its uniqueness as a community of solidarity”.
Again, another wonderful buffet!! With lots of choices!
